Machine vision may be a well known automation tool, but revealing if and where it can be applied in your own facility can still be a difficult task. These simple questions can help you determine if you're missing out on an opportunity to see significant process improvements through machine vision.   

Do You Rely On Manual Inspections?
Manual inspection stations are costly, hazardously repetitive for workers and can either produce errors in inspection or call for inspections that simply cannot be done reliably with the human eye. It is an often cited statistic that 100% human inspection catches 80% of the errors. This is a great place to apply vision technology.

Have You Ever Had A Product Recall?
Product recalls are extremely costly to the manufacturer and can severely damage relationships with customers. One recall due to missed inspection can dwarf the cost of an expertly integrated vision system.
